To my amazing customers:
I am so lucky to be in a job I love but also one that has constant communication with my customers. I’ve heard many of you say you want IMO (isomaltooligosaccharide) free mixes due to the FDA ruling where it is no longer 100% a fiber.
Once that ruling came out, I got to work and reformulated ALL my mixes. Luckily, I am the R&D, Chef, and Food Scientist all-in-one for Good Dee’s.
Since the ruling from June 2018 I worked on new formulas, bags, the works. Although I have until January 2021 to change all my formulas because I am a smaller company, I wanted to do it earlier. I’ve already rolled out the updated cornbread, sugar cookie, blondies, double chocolate chip, and yellow cake.
In the next two months, I’ll be releasing the updated chocolate cake, muffin, and none other than brownie! Pancakes and snickerdoodle, although never having IMO, are updated recipes as well. I will never stop innovating and I will never stop improving, if I see room for it.
So what changes did I make? I replaced IMO with soluble tapioca fiber aka resistant dextrin. You’ll often see that or soluble corn fiber aka resistant maltodextrin on the market. I use soluble corn fiber in my sprinkles, chocolate chip cookies, coconut cake, and carrot cake. These are approved fibers by the FDA and low net carbs.
As you know, I never hid the fact I used IMO and noted it on the mixes that had it. It would be listed as prebiotic soluble fiber from either tapioca or corn. This is different than soluble tapioca or corn fibers which are resistant dextrin or maltodextrin, respectively. As both a brand and consumer, I urge you to always read labels and ask question. Please ask me whatever you like!
Another great perk of changing the formula? Most mixes now use less butter or oil which cut down on calories AND means less ingredients you need to add. I really think you’ll love the texture and taste and worked endlessly for 1.5 years to make sure you do!
Do you love the current formula? I understand. They’re great, too! And we still have current formulas of brownies, pancakes, muffin, and chocolate cake on sale until sold out. After they’re sold, all new formulas will be ushered in.
Thank you for the constant support and letting me create food that end up in your homes-I will never stop being grateful for that. As the owner and creator of Good Dee’s, I will always work endlessly for you all because you have trusted a lot in me and I appreciate it more than you know!
What an exciting way to start 2020-new formulas and more items to come! My boys, Ibbi and Gus, have personally approved all updated mixes.
